Vivi’s animal instincts are her legacy—and maybe her downfall—in this start to a romantic fantasy series that will appeal to fans of The Nine Lives of Chloe King.
Vivi has known the truth about her family—and herself—since she was thirteen. But that doesn’t mean she’s accepted it. Being Haguari isn’t something she feels she’ll ever accept. How can she feel like anything but a freak knowing that it’s in her genes to turn into a jaguar?
Now eighteen, Vivi’s ready to break away from the traditions of her heritage. But all of that changes with the shocking, devastating deaths of her parents and the mysteries left behind. Vivi discovers family she never even knew she had, and a life open with possibility. New friends, new loyalties, and even romance all lay ahead—but so do dangers unlike anything Vivi ever could have imagined.
Wait...jaguars? So this is about a girl...who can shape-shift into a jaguar? NEEEED. I have been craving any and all things regarding shape-shifters of any sort, and a girl who shape-shifts into a jaguar? A jaguar, people. And I've also heard beyond amazing things about Tiernan's Immortal Beloved trilogy from many friends of mine, so I am even more excited to read Darkest Fear now. But I'm not a fan of how the series name is larger than the book's title on the cover.
